If you are here and are reading this, THANK YOU! I have been anticipating this day for so long, and I AM SO EXCITED. I have put so much love into this blog and I can only hope that it shows and that in time, my readers will come to love it as much as I do.
My hope is that I can fill this blog with a lot of love. Love for yourself. Love for your home. And love for your spouse.
If you know me personally than you know that for the past two years I have been working as a nanny. And let me first say that I loved it. I mean, I don't know how you can't love a job where you literally get to hang out with really, really cute kids all day, everyday. Honestly, most of the time it didn't feel like work.
But, as much fun as the job was, it took an unexpected "toll" on me.
I went from college, where I did my makeup and hair, picked out cute outfits day after day, just to do it all over again for that night out on the town to . . . nannying, where I went to the same place day after day, saw the same people every day and honestly hung out with messy kids all day. My mindset did a complete 360, because I began to think what is the point in trying to look nice, doing my makeup, hair and all that jazz only for the kids to accidentally splatter bright red spaghetti sauce on my cute white shirt?
So, for the last two years this has been my mindset and like I said, it took a toll on me. A toll that I didn't really expect, nor did I recognize for some time.
To be blatantly honest here, I feel like I lost this love for myself that I once had and that I believe everyone should really have. As Taylor and I prepare for this move to Texas (for those who don't know, we're moving to Texas! YAY!) I have a lot of changes that I plan to make - plans that will make me "me" again.
I have sort of broken this blog up into 3 sections: lifestyle, home and marriage. Three topics that I happen to really love.
It is my plan & goal to share our lifestyle with you and this could involve just about anything and everything. I happen to love clothes and fashion, make-up, travel, cooking (mostly baking, let's be honest), reading, exercising, holidays, shopping and so much more.
Plus I have some really amazing family members who have really good style, life changing hair tips, major photography skills, crazy art talent - oh and did I mention that they all have REALLY cute kids. So every once in a while, you might see some of their stuff on here.
I really want this blog to be about finding and creating a lifestyle that you LOVE. I'm excited to continue finding and creating my lifestyle, especially in our new home, and I hope that you follow me in this journey and that somewhere along the way you find and begin to live the lifestyle that you have dreamed of.
Thanks for reading!
I love y'all.
Stay tuned to check out my first "home" post coming this FRIDAY!
